My winter sightings of Western Bluebird in my yard in Sherwood, OR are usually associated with co-foraging Yellow-rumped Warblers. After observing this a half dozen or so times, a web search resulted in notes from another that had also observed this behavior - if I see a bluebird, I look for the warbler, usually with success. They both forage on the ground using low branches as perches in their efforts.
